Coloradan climbs Everest

I confess I didn’t know about and haven’t been following the adventures of fellow Coloradan Jon Kedrowski. But I just read that he reached the summit of Mt. Everest last Friday! Climbers and mountaineers of all kinds are a dime a dozen in this state, but very, very few of them will ever be able to claim they got to the summit of Everest. Check out the story on the Huffington Post and also on Jon’s blog. I guess it wasn’t enough for him to be the first person to climb and spend the night on the summit of every one of Colorado’s 54 “fourteeners” (peaks higher than 14,000 ft.).
